College ceremonies to be in person

The newest community college in California, Madera Community College, is set to host its first-ever commencement ceremonies on May 20 and 21, 6 p.m. at Madera Community College, 30277 Avenue 12.


Madera Community College became the 116th college in California in July 2020. Campuses are located in Madera and Oakhurst.


“I am proud of our first-ever graduating class. They persevered to achieve their college degrees amid a global pandemic. This says a lot about Madera Community College students — their tenacity, their grit, their resilience,” said President Reyna, MCC’s first college president.


Ceremonies are set to be in person unless county health orders change. Seating will be limited to two guests per student to ensure proper social distancing can be maintained.
